Hi there iModelers!
Here is another project from my shelf…
Initially, this kit was released by Heller back in the 1970s. In the 1980s, I was given the opportunity to drive a bike like this myself. It was a friend‘s bike and since then I couldn’t stop thinking buying one. Although I never happened to get the real one, I at least did it in 1/8 scale after Hellers latest reboxing in 2017.
In this article I also take you on a journey into my family photo album… One picture is showing me next to my brother (I am the one on the left ;-)) back in the late 1970s when I was starting to dig into mopeds and motorcycles etc.
From all my finished projects in 2018 this was the build I enjoyed the most. The colours turned out to be quite challenging because I had in mind to let it look like a shining and immaculate bike in the end.
Enjoy the pictures!
